This long-overdue vinyl reissue of Yoko Ono’s seminal, but massively under-appreciated Plastic
Ono Band has all the makings of a classic rock nostalgia trip: Ono, John Lennon, Ringo Starr,
Klaus Voorman and free-jazz legend Ornette Coleman. All the pieces are here to stir up a
dangerous amount of nostalgia. But once the needle drops, the record achieves something
exactly perpendicular to nostalgia.
Released in 1971, the album not only influenced the approach of other musicians for decades,
it also sounds absolutelymodern 44 years out, eternally fresh despite the forwardmarch of time.
Yoko Ono/Plastic Ono Band not only predicted the intersection of the avant-garde and rock that
would take place in the second half of that decade, the album would sound right at home at
where that intersection is happening today.
